Quick Summary

eRank has the ability to take daily snapshots of your active listings and record changes to your listings' titles, tags, price, quantity available, total views, and total favorites.

Benefits

Members on eRank's Basic Plan can use the "Changes" report to track changes on any one listing of your choice, or for PRO members, track up to 20 active listings. Quickly see changes you have made to a listing's titles and tags, and whether they are improving the performance of this listing's views, favorites, or sales.

How to Use

Track Changes is only available on published Etsy listings and currently is limited to tracking either one listing (basic plan) or 20 listings (PRO). Start by selecting Listings > Active Listings from the drop-down menu. Click the "Track Changes" button next to the listing you want to track.

If you are already tracking 20 listings, you will see a warning that you can only track 20 listings. In order to track a new listing, you will have to stop tracking another listing. Before you click that red "Stop Tracking" button though, note that doing so will permanently remove all of eRank's changes-related data for that listing, so if you'd like to save it, click the "Return to Listing" button, then click the "Show Changes" button for this listing and export your data for use in the future. Then click the "Stop Tracking" button for this listing and click the "Back to Listings" button.

Find the new listing you want to track and click the "Track Changes" button for it. You'll see the notice that a snapshot has been made and that you are now tracking this listing.

After the first snapshot, eRank will take one new snapshot every 24 hours between midnight and 2AM (EST). Note that if you make several changes over the course of a day, the snapshot will capture only the latest changes made during the previous 24 hours.

You can access all your tracked listings by going to Listings > Changes in the site menu or by clicking on the "Changes" tab in your Active Listings page.

To see your changes for a listing, click the green "Show Changes" button next to that listing.

All changes to your title or tags will display as green highlighted text for added characters, while deleted text will be shown as red highlighted text with strike-through characters.

Note that it may take several days for your changes to be recognized by Etsy, so it may be that long before you start to see your Views and Favorites improve for this listing.

Note too that because some Etsy shoppers add items to their Favorites as a reminder that they might like to purchase them, you may see a listing's "Total Favorites" decrease as customers purchase, then remove it from their Favorites.
